Conservative carnival barker Rush Limbaugh was taken to the hospital complaining of chest pains. Since I am a firm believer in the phrase “only the good die young” I am fairly confident he’ll pull through.
Apparently Rush has been vacationing in Hawaii like his political idol President Obama. There is no word as to the cause of the Rotund One’s chest pain, perhaps the Kahala Hotel announced that the resort’s weekend luaus did not have sufficient red spareribs and mashed ripe bananas to meet his needs. Perhaps Hawaiian Pharmacies wouldn’t take a note from his mother? A poorly made Mai Tai? Maybe his caddy was white.
Actually the idea that his golfing at the Waialae Country Club brought it on would make him the most unfortunate golfer this year, save perhaps Tiger Woods.
In reality, I don’t wish Limbaugh the unhappy end he has wished on others. I hope he recovers and returns to milking his angry followers by exploiting their need for feelings of superiority and stroking their resentments. If it wasn’t Limbaugh it would be someone else. So here is to the speedy recovery of the sad man and may his health care experience be a pleasant one.
